Marine Wastewater Outfalls and Treatment Systems brings these disciplines together and ...

Treatment of Micropollutants in Water and Wastewater

Over the last few years there has been a growing concern over the increasing concentration of micropollutants originating from a great variety of sources including pharmaceutical, chemical engineering and personal care product industries in rivers, lakes, soil and groundwater. As most of the micropollutants are polar and persistent compounds, they are only partially or not at all removed from wastewater and thus can enter the environment posing ...
